This is a set we have been building for the military, for some time now. We have been given permission to offer it on our web site as it provides another avenue for active duty personnel to purchase it. But of course, you can also purchase this set that the military carefully selected. We received requests to offer it in our other profiles. Originally it was only offered in our famous 0.025" Government Steel. Now, we are proud to offer it in our Slender 0.015" Government Steel. You get 4 Government Steel picks with plastic handles, one mini knife tool, and a Peterson Pry-bar Lite. Plus, of course, a leather snap over case.
These picks are manufactured from 0.015 thick Government Steel and are then molded into a blue tone plastic handle. This is our very thinnest series of picks. They are useful for locks having very narrow key ways.
As they are somewhat thinner than the 0.018 picks, they are designed without the 0.018 series "Euro" shank reduction in order to maintain more strength while providing egress into very restrictive key ways.
Please note that as these picks are specially designed to provide access into narrow key ways where standard picks will not fit. This reduction in width comes at a logical cost in rigidity. Using these picks in wider key ways means you will lose the side to side lateral support for your pick that a narrow key way provides. If you are heavy handed you may find that these picks will try to flex sideways, or even bend under high pressure in locks with wide key ways.
